Comedian Louis C.K. (real name Louis Székely) already owns four units in a West Village brownstone, but these were joint purchases with his ex-wife, painter Alix Baily. Though they openly maintain a good relationship, he’s now ventured out on his own, as the Observer reports that he dropped $2.45 million on a two-bedroom co-op at 101 West 12th Street, a larger apartment building a few blocks away.
The previous owners were architect Peter Eisenman and Cynthia Davidson, who bought the apartment in 2007 after living in a different unit in the building previously. It’s rather basic, but there are nice details, like a wall of built-in bookshelves in the living room personally designed by Eisenman, oversized windows offering expansive views, an updated kitchen with cherry cabinets and granite counters, and a separate office. The Observer notes that the couple bought the a
C.K. and Baily divorced in 2008, but often talk of getting along for the sake of their two daughters. And since the new pad is less than a ten minute walk from the other units, the girls will never have to go far.
